A Fed Redefined
Envisioned roles of the American federal government domestically: education, healthcare, infrastructure, economic oversight (watching and regulation), defense (against all hazards), environmental stewardship. Anything beyond this scope should be left to the states or counties or municipalities or coalitions or sub-governments to work out, potentially with federal support. The feds are too large to do experimental governing, especially in the unvetted large scale. Better to leave experimentation in the lower levels and work with best practices that develop, potentially with some federal financial support.
